DUANE OLLINGER

After making a fortune as a high-risk oil contractor, Duane sold his company in Amarillo, Texas and put everything into a wildcat gold mining opportunity in the Uintah Mountains in Utah. Since he started prospecting at Blind Frog Ranch, he's discovered a system of underground caverns that run underneath the property. He's since become convinced that a famous lost treasure is hidden inside the caverns, and his singular focus has been finding it. But the locals in the area say that a curse protects the treasure, and Duane has had a myriad of strange occurrences that have knocked him off course. This year, he has to get some return on his investment or risk having to sell the property.
